INTRODUCTION

Cardiac Care Technology measures how well a heart is functioning and can monitor heart rate. Technicians here measure how well a patient's heart is functioning. Cardiac care technicians are the medical professionals who administer various tests that assist the doctor in diagnosis.Cardiac care technicians assist physicians during invasive cardiovascular testing, where a tube is inserted into one of the blood vessels that carry blood into the heart. Once doctors insert the catheter, technicians monitor patients' heart rates and blood pressure, looking for any signs of trouble or distress.
